MEDIA & COMMUNICATION

Liverpool is a vibrant city of culture and a hub of media creativity and innovation, and is an ideal location to pursue your studies in Media and Communication. This is an exciting and important time to study Media and Communication, as the impact of the media on society has never been greater or changing at so rapid a pace.

At Liverpool Hope, we will support you in developing a deeper understanding of the media’s relationship to society, history, culture, power, and industry. The course will encourage you to look at digital and social media from new perspectives, analysing how they have disrupted traditional ways of communicating and interacting with the world around us. And it will challenge you to become an adaptable, independent, and professional communicator: someone who can develop original ideas and produce creative journalistic, digital and social media content to deliver on them.

The course is designed to help you become an industry leader who is equipped to take on the critical task of working towards a trustworthy, ethical media. You will gain advanced skills in professional journalistic, digital and social media communication across a variety of platforms, while also developing transferable skills in critical analysis and creative practice that will prepare you for a wide range of careers. Our curriculum is taught by tutors with international reputations for world leading research and who have industry experience in their own practice traditions, including journalism and digital and social media communication.

MUSIC

As a world-renowned city of music - with active and increasingly growing popular, classical, jazz, electronic and experimental music scenes - Liverpool is an ideal location for pursuing the creative practice and study of music. The BA Music Programme at Liverpool Hope will offer you the opportunity to explore the many facets of performing, composing, producing, and intellectually engaging with music across a broad range of topics and genres, including popular, classical, jazz, electronic, and world music traditions.

Our music programme benefits from a unique, creative scholarly approach that features:

- An inclusive outlook towards genre that allows students to pursue their musical interests.

- A wide-ranging approach to music study that develops diverse skills in performance, composition and academic study.

- A variety of opportunities to perform in and compose for university ensembles, student-led ensembles, and other musically collaborative experiences.

- A team with multifaceted interests in music that are pursued professionally beyond the university setting.

Our Music programme is part of our School of Creative and Performing Arts, based at the Creative Campus, and housed in the purpose-built Capstone building. The School is one of only a handful of All-Steinway Music Schools in the UK and, in addition to a Steinway Model D in the Capstone Theatre, we also have a number of sound-proofed bespoke music recording, rehearsal and practice spaces. There is also a good stock of musical instruments and outboard technology to cater across all musical genres.

Our students have had opportunities to gain professional experience with a variety of professional organisations, including Liverpool Sound City, Immix Ensemble, Parr Street Studios, Sentric Music, Ditto Music, The Vocal Booth studio, Melodic Distraction (radio station), and The Beatles Experience, among others.

We continually establish connections within the wider industry and our programme regularly hosts music industry professionals, who provide real-world knowledge through their guest lectures.
